Reference Computer fixed

There was a problem with the reference desk computer that caused pink wonkiness when you right clicked. Esther did her thing, and now the machine is all better.

However, since some things have been changed around, you will have to type your IP address afresh into the remote desktop log in. Remember http://whatismyip.com to identify your IP address.

PS I am going to start running Ad-Aware and SpyBot on the ref desk machine on Fridays.
